Katherine Weinstein Miller

Chief Probation Officer, Juvenile Probation Department, San Francisco

Katy Weinstein Miller is the Chief Probation Officer for San Francisco’s Juvenile Probation Department, where she has served since January 2020. She came to Juvenile Probation following 12 years at the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, where she served as an Assistant District Attorney, Managing Attorney, and ultimately Chief of Programs and Initiatives, leading policy and program development for the DA’s alternative justice programs and strategies. In this capacity, she oversaw the DA’s Juvenile, Mental Health and Alternative Courts Units, and implemented nationally recognized programs focused on restorative justice, young adults, and alternatives to traditional prosecution. Prior to joining the DA’s Office, Katy worked at both the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice and the Delancey Street Foundation on a major initiative to reform San Francisco’s juvenile justice system, including the development of the City’s Community Assessment and Referral Center (CARC) – a national model for diverting youth from our justice system. In her early days as a lawyer, Katy represented children as a deputy public defender at the San Diego Public Defender’s Office.
